UTTOXETER-BORN swimming superstar Adam Peaty has broken the world record for the short-course 100 metres breaststroke for a second time in eight days.
Peaty clocked clocked 55.41 secs on the final day of the International Swimming League (ISL) in Budapest today (Nov 22), clipping eight hundredths of a second off the time of 55.49 secs he set last weekend .
The previous record time of 55.61 secs set by South Africa's Cameron van der Burgh in Berlin had stood for 11 years.
Peaty, representing London Roar in the ISL, was pushed all the way by Ilya Shymanovich, with the lead switching back-and-forth, before the Olympic champion pulled clear in the final strokes.
Shymanovich matched Uttoxeter-born Peaty’s previous world record of 55.49s.
